Answer is in explanation


Can you say the word 'something' after a verb? If you can, then it is a transitive verb. If not, then it is an intransitive verb.

e.g. to lift (can you lift something? Yes. So 'lift' is a transitive verb.)
to fall (can you fall something? No. So 'fall' is an intransitive verb.)
to go (can you go something? No. Intransitive.)
to eat (can you eat something? Yes. Transitive)
to remember (transitive)
to sleep (intransitive)
